What Is Urodynamics?
Urodynamics refers to a set of tests that are performed to examine the bladder’s ability to retain and release urine completely. These tests focus on the lower urinary tract, which includes the bladder, urethra, and sphincter muscles. Urodynamic tests are also used to measure the flow of urine, nerve function, and bladder pressure. Dr. Shenelle Wilson may use one or more of these tests if you are experiencing issues with urinary incontinence. Some urodynamic tests offered at our Kennesaw, GA office are cystometry, electromyography, and uroflowmetry. To learn more about these tests, call Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center to schedule an appointment.
Why Is Urodynamics Performed?
Chronic illness, injury, aging, and pregnancy can cause problems in the urinary system. The bladder and urethral muscles weaken with age, increased pressure, and a decrease in estrogen. Weak muscles may cause trouble in emptying the bladder completely or more commonly, urinary incontinence. Reasons you might have urodynamic testing done may include:
- Frequent urination
- Involuntary release of urine, also called urinary incontinence
- Sudden, strong urges to urinate
- Painful urination
- Trouble emptying your bladder completely
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- You are considering having surgery
Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
She's about the most personable, nicest, caring, down to earth doctor I have ever met in any medical field. I love her to pieces. I want to invite her over for dinner. -Wanda Massey
